“Magical Thinking is a sum of efforts between myself and more incredible collaborators, seeking to expand my sound beyond the tropical beaches into more intimate moments. The album showcases my singing voice much more, my penchant for string quartet compositions, some introspective lyrics longing for companionship and to hold on to something eternal. When I first started writing, I centered the album around memory loss – trying not to lose the things closest to us. But as the writing process drew on and the album started to take shape, I felt like the seasons were a good metaphor for the entire body of work. We will inevitably go through changes in life but it’s still okay to mourn the past.” – Shallou
